Management

Joy Alampay

Joy Alampay, Executive Director

For over three decades, Joy Alampay has had stints in government, civil society, and the private and development sectors. She has handled programs at the national, regional, and international levels. The common thread to her career has been her experience and leadership in public health programs, events, and strategic communications. Most recently she was National Manager of the Philippine Red Cross’ 200,000-strong volunteer corps. Prior to that, she was with the World Health Organization Non-Communicable Diseases Division, handling m-Health solutions, events and communications for the Western Pacific Region. For 8 years prior, she was with the Bangkok-based Southeast Asia Tobacco Control Alliance, as regional communications manager.

Joy's experience - and her built-up network of movers and leaders across the Philippines, Southeast Asia, and the Asia Pacific, from civil servants to development agencies and business people and the academe - make her a timely leader for Asia Society Philippines. She has handled projects and programs, run and designed tech-driven solutions for public health and government challenges, supported policy-advocacy work – and, as a side note, though no less relevant to Asia Society’s mandate, she has even project managed some of the biggest international concerts ever held in Manila, as part of the Music Management International Live Team. (She handled the shows of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and Maroon 5, among others…and personally organized and accompanied Justin Bieber’s outreach to the communities devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.)
